Openwind


  • Determine the best layout balancing energy output with construction costs using the AWST exclusive Cost of Energy Optimization module
  • Deep Array Wake Modules are more accurate than leading competing modules and are essential for estimating wake losses for utility-scale wind farms
  • Software developed drawing on over 30 years of consulting expertise assures confidence from financial institutions
  • Compatibility with other wind software enables seamless file sharing & easy migration of existing procedures

"Compared to competition, Openwind is greatly adaptable, tweakable, detailed, useful and GIS compatible. It could surpass other software applications (such as WindPRO, WAsP, Meteodyn, WindSim, WindFarmer, etc) in many respects using different built in Openwind features. I would like to emphasize the fast and effective customer support."
~ Kornel Rozsavolgyi, Orion Renewable Energy Group
